    My Camera is Canon A430, after 2 yrs of using, it just give me a black screen. I've pressed "Disp" button many times.

    I can still see picture of taken photo through the display, but cannot see anything when trying to take picture, it just black.

    If if I try to use the window viewer to get picture, I only get black result.


    Thanks for your attention and assistant.

Cannon SD 750 - when i try to take a picture a black screen appe


Think that you accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the LCD display on and off to save batteries. You would then use the optical viewfinder in its place. To turn the screen back on, just press the DISP button one more time.

Powershot screen is black


Dear 31jp:

It sounds at first glance as though you're probably experiencing a failed CCD image sensor. This model has an product advisory out on that very issue.

First try pressing the display (DISP) button on the back of your camera several times to see if your image returns at any time. One of the three display modes is "off" to preserve battery life. Your problem may be as simple as inadvertently pressing this button into the off mode.

If that doesn't work, try doing a reset and then removing your batteries from the camera for a few minutes, reinstalling them and turning the camera on to test the LCD screen.

If your screen is still black, but you can clearly see pictures taken previous to the problem, and you can clearly see the menu system when you press the MENU button, then you likely have the CCD sensor problem. Contact Canon Tech Support at 1-800-828-4040 to have the camera repaired. If yiou are experiencing the image sensor probem as described in the product advisory, the camera will be repaired at no charge regardless of how long you've owned it.

Hope this helps.

Sincerely,
HeavyDLB
